Northumberland coastal club run
Saturday 22nd July 2023 09:30
Without doubt, one of the most scenic marathon in the country.From Alnmouth Beach along a scenic coastal path passing Boulmer, Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle and Low Newton Sands, the marathon takes you up to Long Nanny Bridge, where after a short run on the beach the course returns to Alnmouth along the same route. The half marathon follows the same route to Craster then returns back to Alnmouth.
Location: The run starts on the beach beside the children's play area in Alnmouth. Meet at 9:30 by the toilets which can be found at the bottom of Pease's Lane, just next to the Clubhouse of the Alnmouth Village Golf Course.

Parking: Postcode for your SatNav: NE66 2RJ. There is a large public car park right on the sea front. Take the first left as you enter the village onto the Wynd and then your first left again as you go down the hill. The car park on the sea front is not free in the Spring and Summer season, when there is an attendant collecting at it's entrance before the golf course.
